Barcelona star Marc Ter Stegen targeting September injury comeback

Barcelona goal keeper Marc Ter Stegen is making progress with his injury rehabilitation and could return to action in September.

Ter Stegen opted to miss out on Germany duty at Euro 2020 to undergo surgery on a persistent knee injury at the end of May.
